Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. In 2007 mobile continued to steam ahead in developing markets, to the extent that early signs of market saturation are becoming evident. In the developed world, broadband, as a facilitating infrastructure, is creating a boom in video-based applications in healthcare, education, business, media, entertainment and government. In both government and business, a mindshift is taking place as to the importance of broadband. The financial market will increasingly become involved with private equity to unlock the hidden telecoms values in this utility market. This report provides analysis and a summary of the key developments that have taken place in the industry, primarily in 2007. The report describes the impact of changes in the industry and explores some future directions.
